In Ireland her name is more likely to be Ellen rather than Helen but civil registration of births didn't start until 1864. To find church records you need to know the family's religion and where they lived (parish if not exact townland). Unfortunately, not all church records from early 1800s survive. Does her birthplace in census records say 'Armaugh' or Armagh?

Hi , it says armaugh .

I've no idea what reglion she was and I don't know the parish the census which states her birth place as armaugh was on the 1861 Scottish census . She must have moved to Scotland around 1838 she got married in old machar and settled in Dundee after that . Sadly it  Looks like I won't be able to find anything more about her then . Thanks for the info though I'm  on the Scotland's people site but I think the censuses started at 1841 there I'll double check I couldn't see her there last time I looked . S

Does the 1861 census actually say 'Armaugh' rather than Armagh? are you reading the original or a transcript?

Have you looked to see if there are any other Marshall in the area in case relatives also came to Scotland?
